The Finest Hours Movie Trailer. Craig Gillespie‘s The Finest Hours (2016) movie trailer stars Chris Pine, Casey Affleck, Eric Bana, and Ben Foster. The Finest Hours‘ plot synopsis: “The Coast Guard makes a daring rescue attempt off the coast of Cape Cod after a pair of oil tankers are destroyed during a blizzard in 1952.”
The trailer makes this seem like a fairly CGI-infected Disney ride, at times, and then like a worthwhile period-piece disaster flick. I just can’t put my finger on it, but I’m not sure this movie is going to be anything more than a sentimental love story with a CGI disaster in the middle. I hope I’m wrong, because the talent here is seriously impressive. There is not way I won’t be watching this, with a cast like Casey Affleck, Ben Foster, and Eric Bana (the latter of which seems to be sadly playing a very token “I’m a dumb military guy and you’ll obey my orders” kind of character).
In any case, judge for yourself. Does this look like a better version of The Perfect Storm? Or does it look painfully computer generated, emotionally fabricated, and narratively cliche? I’m leaning toward the latter, but am hoping for former. Though that’s a high bar to cross, in my eyes.
